Will Sergeant's Top 5...DIY accidents

The Bunnyman and artist gives his list of horrors - in a graphic graphic

Will Sergeant's Top 5...DIY accidents

NORMALLY when we ask people to write up their Top 5 Anything they happily oblige and do just that. Just that.

Not Will Sergeant. 

The guitar playing legend of Echo and the Bunnymen got a bit handy with the old Photoshop when he came up with his definitive list of DIY accidents and fashioned it into his own work of art (see the graphic graphic below).

This is something that Will is doing a lot of lately. He has got into art, big style, and, mentored a bit by his pal Colin Fallows, the chief cheese of sound and visual arts at the Liverpool John Moores University, he has produced some pretty groovy works of late. All of which can be bought as limited edition prints at www.willsergeant.com

Will also runs Friction, a monthly DJ residency at 3345, Parr St, described as “sonic vibrations from the past present and future”.

Next Thursday's (October 7) sees The Wicked Whispers playing an acousticnset, and Eva Petersen punctuating the free fun.

If that's not enough, catch the Bunnymen themselves at The Olympia on December 12 performing the whole of Crocodiles and Heaven Up Here in a “rock n roll masterclass”. But you'll have to be quick. There's only a couple of dozen tickets left. Click here

In the meantime, don't look up, there's wet paint on that ceiling. Look, we said DON'T!

Wise words indeed Sarge. NURSE!!!

NadiaSeptember 30th 2010.

Back in old country is woman and mans equal when it comes to working big tool, as when Nadia spend two years breaking up concrete on roads of Moscow. But this remind me that all DIY accident can be fixed with household first aid handed down by babooshka!

Is easy. When Nadia once find find something large and fleshy in forest high in Urals she know is severed arm of first of five husbands Nikolai who came home from out gathering wood, without chainsaw also.

So he drink much bottles of vodka and Nadia sew back on with darning needle and thread and it last for a while yes. But then die in pain, so not so good.

I wondered what happened to Nikolai. Has Mr. Sargent any suggestions for safely dealing with clergymen?

Corporal PunishmentOctober 1st 2010.

Sarge knows best! I was once hit painfully on the forehead by a small stone hurled by a strimmer that was being using fifteen feet away. Since then I always hide in the house when the missus is using it.

Is Mr. Sargent aware that in the photograph he is starting to look like Jonathan Ross?

Major MisunderstandingOctober 1st 2010.

I think that Mr. Sargent ought to adopt some kind of headgear to distinguish him from the unpopular playboy.

I would suggest he adopt the habitual wearing of a stovepipe hat. It is dignified and would become his trademark.

General DisorderOctober 7th 2010.

Hear hear! One can accuse Jonathan Ross of many things but being dignified is not one of them! Don the stovepipe, Sargent!

Major Misunderstanding, you have hit the nail right on the head.
